Connecting with business

Why does EPSRC want to connect with business?

EPSRC wants to understand the research and training needs of business in order to feed these into our own strategy and decision making, and to connect business with academia to ensure that the outputs of the research and training that we fund are fully exploited.

Why should business connect with EPSRC?

EPSRC has in-depth knowledge of the people and the research that is taking place within the academic community and can help you find potential partners.

Our rigorous method of assessing funding proposals sets a benchmark for research quality. We currently support around 6,000 projects totalling in the region of £3 billion, and so there is a wealth of information available to help you select the most appropriate partners.

Our flexible funding arrangements provide many opportunities for businesses and other organisations to interact with internationally-leading UK universities.
